Wow Cheryl that sounds good. I may try that. I have had a cold and cannot breathe much less exercise and I feel it all over. Will try to get back walking tomorrow. I Promise.

Well it's good to see you here. Any little thing we do FOR OURSELVES Is a plus in my eyes.

I am working too much this week but tomorrow is my day for me. Exercise, cooking and some planning for next week. It all goes to Heck if I don't plan.

I am very proud of this moment I had this morning. I lay in bed at 5am with the radio on trying to get up to get on the bike before work. I decided to sleep in, then I started to anticipate breakfast and plan what to EAT. All of a sudden I realized the energy I was putting into breakfast could be put into the bike. I bound out of bed and got dressed and went directly to the bike for 45 minutes. Plenty of time for shower and breakfast after. I feel great about that decision.

I have been back on the bike 4 days now at 5am. I need this consistency. Good for me huh?

Hi Peg – I thought I'd jump on here and start doing what you're doing: Looking for one thing that I've done each day that's a positive thing. NICE job working out consistently. I also get up at 5am to get my workout done for the day and there are times that my comforter seems to weigh 500lbs and won't let me out from underneath it! But when I do go I'm in such a better mood and I'm a much nicer person all day. :bcb_bigsm

Today I lifted weights and jump roped even though I was really sore from yesterday's circut class. After I got done, I wasn't nearly as sore so I know that it helped getting those muscles warmed up, stretched out and used! I am thankful that I am taking the time for ME each morning. icon14.png

Still keeping up with the bike or walking. This is what I CAN Do. If I made this lifestyle change the only way it's going to STICK is if I keep it up.

Peg - you are doing great with the exercise. I believe that is KEY to keeping the weight off and being healthy. :salut

 

I had an excellent dinner tonight and chose fish over a fat and juicy ribeye steak. Steak isn't that big of a deal to me so I thought I could have a LOT of fish or a little nugget of steak for the same points so I picked the tilapia. Stopped eating when I was satisfied and left a little food on my plate which is not usually my style. Working on listening to my body instead of cleaning up my plate!

I got onto the scale on Friday and almost passed out. So I took a long hard look at how I have been behaving. I started weighing and measuring my food again. I never really did that but a few weeks ago the leaders were saying Weigh and measure just 10 of the foods you usually eat to be sure your portions are on track. Mine were WAY WAY off and I knew that without dusting off my WW food scale. So I got that in order. I stopped snacking after dinner. I started back on my stationary bike. That bike lost me 133lbs I need to respect it more. So my alarm is set for 4:45 and I am on the bike at 5am with coffee and my iPod. The weight is falling off me thankfully. I have eaten all of my 29 points and none extra.

 

I got so scared but really I have to go thru this to come out of the other side feeling successful and knowing how to do this. Thanks to WW I really know how to do this.

 

Right now I am 4.8 above goal. I was 7 above when I started.

 

Be well all.

Peg

Peg, it is so true that we all let the portions creep up. I do that, too. I always try to guess and then weigh to see if I'm on target and I'm usually underestimating how many ounces I have. I need to be able to eyeball the portions because I don't plan on weighing and measuring the rest of my life! Good for you for catching yourself before your weight gets out of control. You have made an amazing goal and you'll be right back there before you know it. Losing 4.8 is totally do-able.

 

This weekend I worked out every day and ate mexican food, which I love, love, love and so I don't feel deprived or like I'm "on a diet". I'm still OP and loving the energy and happy moods I have!

I am in the same boat with weight creeping back. I did my workout and am tryingto change it up by walking then jogging up/down inclines. I have 3 DPA left and will use only those plus zero foods for dinner.

Today I have been planning. We're going to a cabin in the mountains for 3 days which usually means a lot of eating out and snacking. But I will not sabatoge myself so I'm taking lots of healthy items and I'm keeping my tracker by my side to write things down so I don't get out of control. I plan on getting outside and having fun in the snow with the kids and not just laying around reading books the whole time (although I'll definitely do some of that). I have to make eating this way a priority and it has to become my new, normal habit. I can do this!

I opted out of the soda and reached for the milk at Subway for lunch today!

Thanks everyone for keeping this going. I am happy to report the weight is falling off and was really noticeable in the shower today. I have even started tracking in my phone which is so much fun really and works like a charm. I track the night before and so far only eat what I tracked. Not hungry at all. Thank you all for the support.

Nice job Angel and Peg! It's good to have all those little successes... that's what keeps us all going, doesn't it? I stayed on the plan this weekend at the cabin in the mountains and although I ate more "party points" than I normally do, I was still in control and I feel good! I went for an hour walk every morning, even in the pouring rain and even when it was 20 degrees. I just love that I am incorporating this way of eating into my real life and that I can do this long-term!

Hi all. I have been on the bike and/or walking every single day for at least two weeks now. I am getting closer to goal but it is slow. I am not eating my 29 and that is probably why. I am trying but not there yet. In any case every single day I am doing at least something towards furthering my health.

I am going out to lunch with coworkers today so I'm going to the website of the restaurant and figuring out what to have before I go. I will allow myself to enjoy lunch and not obsess about how many points I'm having...I will have a higher point lunch and feel good about it!

 

Today I got up and worked out this morning even though my legs are so sore from lunges yesterday that I can hardly bend down to pick something up! :bcb_cry: It's all good... just happy to be using my muscles.

Today is my day to really look at my portion sizes again and determine my level of satisfaction after a few bites. I was surprised that only 1/3 of tonights protein was more than enough and did not leave me wanting.

 

I recommend we all measure out ten of common foods we usually eat and see how we are doing. It's eye opening.

 

Got my exercise in at 5 am. Good for me.
